Soccer Best Bets for Premier League, Championship and La Liga action

Weekend Predictions
Premier League, Championship, La Liga

Matchup: Watford at Crystal Palace

League: Premier League
Date-Time: Saturday, March 7, 2020 - 10:00 a.m. ET
Venue: Selhurst Park

Best Bet: Watford draw no bet at 11/10

Watford became the first team to beat Liverpool in the Premier League last weekend. It was no fluke, but a wholly deserved 3-0 victory, and if the Hornets carry on playing like that they will stay up comfortably. Their game at Palace will be much cagier, and Palace go into it with some confidence after winning at bitter rivals Brighton at the weekend.

A low-scored is likely here, which makes the draw a big runner: matches involving Palace have involved fewer goals than any other side. But Watford play the more enterprising football and look value on the draw no bet.

Matchup: Hull City at Stoke City

League: Championship
Date-Time: Saturday, March 7, 2020 - 10:00 a.m. ET
Venue: bet365 Stadium

Best Bet: Stoke City to win at 4/7

Hull were 250/1 to go down at the end of the January transfer window, but the sales of key men Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki and a terrible injury crisis have led to a run of just two points from their last ten games. The Tigers are now 5/2 to drop.

Stoke have struggled all season, but their performances have been better than their results, and their home form has been gradually improving under Michael O’Neill. They have won three of their last four at the Bet365 Stadium and should sweep a dreadful Hull team aside here.

Matchup: Luton Town at Wigan Athletic

League: Championship
Date-Time: Saturday, March 7, 2020 - 10:00 a.m. ET
Venue: DW Stadium

Best Bet: Wigan Athletic to win at 7/10

Wigan are 19th in the Championship but in recent weeks have been playing like a top six side. Since the start of February they have won at the division’s top two in West Brom and Leeds. Last weekend’s win at West Brom was particularly impressive given how they controlled long portions of the match.

The loan signing of Leon Balogun at centre-back from Brighton has been key to their upturn in form. Bottom side Luton have recently been making a decent fist of their attempt to survive, but their away form is still terrible - three wins, no draws and 15 defeats. Wigan look bankers here.

Matchup: Everton at Chelsea

League: Premier League
Date-Time: Sunday, March 8, 2020 - 10:00 a.m. ET
Venue: Stamford Bridge

Best Bet: Both teams to score at 4/6

This is arguably the most intriguing game of the weekend in England. Chelsea are 17/20 here, largely thanks to an injury crisis that sees them without almost their entire first choice midfield and attack for this much. But despite all that, Frank Lampard’s side keep putting in positive performances, as seen in their excellent 2-0 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup on Tuesday.

Everton used to approach away games at big sides very timidly, but Carlo Ancelotti has given them real belief that they can win these games by attacking. Add to that the fact that both sides have keepers in dodgy patches of form and both teams to score looks like the best bet at 4/6.

Matchup: Real Madrid at Real Betis

League: La Liga
Date-Time: Sunday, March 8, 2020 - 3:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Estadio Benito

Best Bet: Real Madrid to win at 3/4

Real Madrid moved top of La Liga thanks to their Clásico win over Barcelona last week, and they look a fair price to win at Real Betis here. Betis have a very talented squad but they have underachieved terribly this year and sit 14th.

Real’s win over Barcelona came after a dodgy couple of games - a loss to Levante and a draw with Celta Vigo - but they had been unbeaten in 14 before then. They have the best defensive record in the league and one goal away at a Betis side short of confidence may be enough.
